Weekly Jackpot Prize Amount

Every Sunday, one fortunate ticket holder is randomly selected from that week’s sales and awarded the Lottle Alaska winnings. If you are the winner of the chosen ticket, you can expect to walk away with an impressive 20% of the total week’s lottery sales. Because each week’s sales can differ, the amount you can win by playing the Alaska state lottery varies and there is no set amount. If you do have the winning numbers, you don’t have to be present.

Chase the Ace Jackpot Amount

If you happen to be the holder of the winning ticket for the week and claim your prize by 6 p.m. on the following Monday after the draw, you will be granted a unique chance at the Chase the Ace Jackpot. You’ll have the exciting opportunity to choose a number from one to 54 on the remaining windows of the Chase the Ace board.

If you take advantage of this opportunity, and the number you chose is the Ace of Spades, you will win the jackpot prize amount. Like the weekly prize, the final amount varies from week to week and is not a set number; however, it is guaranteed to be a minimum of $100,000.


How Prize Money Is Allocated

All Alaska state lottery ticket sales (called “The Pot”) are allocated to different areas of our organization and different prizes:

  • 20% goes to the weekly cash prize (as described above)
  • 30% goes to the Chase the Ace Jackpot
  • 50% goes to  nonprofit organization donations and organization expenses

Forfeited Lottery Winnings

Each week, Alaska lotto winning numbers are chosen and one or more people have the chance to claim their earnings via Lotto Alaska. However, if the winner(s) does not claim their prize by the deadline (the Sunday following the drawing at 4 p.m.), that prize is forfeited and added to the Weekly Jackpot Prize amount. This gives you the chance to win that unclaimed money!
